Kevin is a project director in ECONorthwest's Boise office and a research economist at the Center on Aging & Work at Boston College. Kevin has published on various topics related to applied microeconomics and is known nationally for his research on labor market transitions using the Health and Retirement Study, a large nationally-representative dataset of older Americans. His current projects examine patterns of labor force withdrawal, including bridge job employment, phased retirement, and re-entry, retirement income, occupational changes later in life, and the role of employer-provided pensions in the retirement decisions of older workers. Kevin actively presents his work at academic conferences and workshops across the country and internationally. In addition to his research, Kevin consults in a variety of industries including health care, pharmaceuticals, and banking and testifies in court as an expert witness.

Kevin is a member of the American Economics Association, the Gerontological Society of America, and the Western Economics Association, and currently serves as an ad hoc reviewer for The Gerontologist, The Journal of Human Resources, Research on Aging, The Journal of Applied Gerontology, and other academic journals. Prior to joining ECONorthwest, Kevin was a manager at Analysis Group, a national economic consulting firm based in Boston, Massachusetts.
